Anya final stand, S7

Reccing Thursday

It's Thursday again! Here are some recs. This week's theme appears to be "age difference het."

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Even the Deepest Scars by [ profile] cookiegirl
Wishverse Buffy/Giles, 16k. In an altered Wishverse, Buffy survives and Giles has the chance to get to know the Slayer who was once supposed to be his. But showing Buffy that she doesn't need to be alone isn't easy. This is kind of more pre-het, but it's great to see a fic that really digs into the person Buffy has become in the Wishverse and how she got there, and her and Giles's respective relationships with the Watchers is also really interesting.

The Hunger Games
To the Victor, the Spoil by [ profile] annakovsky
Katniss/Haymitch, 13k. No berries, no mockingjay, no rebellion. Katniss killed Peeta in the arena, and now she has to live with herself like every other victor. This "us against a crapsack world" stuff is absolutely MY JAM. Features, among other things, Katniss having sex with Haymitch so her first time with someone she can choose, before she gets lent out to every rich pervert in the capital. Good angsty feels.
